One of our primary objectives is to sustain a culture of performance – a culture enabling us to "raise the bar" and ensure sustained business success in a rapidly changing and increasingly competitive market.
Performance and development planning
We are committed to giving our associates opportunities to grow and realize their full potential, and create an environment of continuous performance improvement and personal development.
All Novartis associates participate in a performance appraisal and development planning process. This process enables associates to focus on clear and ambitious goals, to set directions and priorities and to clarify expectations within the organization. In addition, this approach promotes a culture of continuous improvement, supports individuals in meeting their development goals, and strengthens organizational capabilities. This process is instrumental to improve individual, team and overall business performance.
We believe that through this commitment, which offers challenging and rewarding career opportunities, we enhance our reputation as an attractive employer.
